Where can I read / learn more about which HPs. I know very little which are preferred? All Belgium? How can you tell? What are the best places to find them?

Thanks,

Greg

Mr. Camp's book, The Shooters Guide to the BHP, is very good. The various forums on the net are great places for info too, a wealth of knowledge and experience.

I have had pretty good luck on gunbroker.com, gunsamerica.com and auctionarms.com. Very few places in town here carry the BHP, and if they do they want way too much. CDNNsports.com has some good deals once in a while. You have to download their catalog though, they don't advertise their guns online. I just ordered an new FN .40 S&W BHP from them for $399 to go with my two 9mm's. They are out of the 9mm except for the ones with the SFS System in it. Good luck..

While the all-Belgium models are preferred, the "assembled in Portugal" models are certainly nothing to turn one's nose up at, IMO. I think these models give the best value for the $$, over the all-Belgium (too expensive for me) or Argentine models (not quite as nice).

Eh, I don't either count nor celebrate that stuff. Clearly, I need a life!

I'd agree with that. I had one Portugal in .40 which I sold because I decided to stick with 9mm. The fit and finish on a Portugal seemed very nice; the finish might have been nicer than a Belgian. Since I didn't have a POrtugal 9, I couldn't do a side by side with a Belgian as far as part fit (by micrometer), but I see no reason to think they weren't just fine as a non-competition pistol. (Not a criticism - virtually anyting in a competition has to be worked on some)
